It'll mellow. Or at least in my experience it does. This beer is ready fast and being a low abv beer people think it should be drank fast but it does stay "green" for a bit. Or at least in my experience. It'll mellow with a bit of time

Is a long secondary a good solution or does it need to be bottle conditioning?

I'd imagine either would work, in secondary it may work faster because it can actually off gas. I have noticed about 1.5 months in the bottle most of strong corn/dms is mostly gone.

I only let this beer sit in fermenter for a week or two opposed to three weeks for stronger beers . this does leave it with a corn taste . But as I posted yesterday after 1 month in bottle this stuff tastes great . Secondary for a couple weeks perhaps then bottle and try one in a week .

I made some with more crystal hops and little vienna and only fermented for two weeks and bottled for one and it tastes horrible . Like bad fruit taste . But that is what happens to others like centennial in my opinion so after a few weeks in bottle I bet it is tasty .
got some more going with a lot of hops in it . Cant wait

I don't have a lhbs within 2 hours of me. I usually order all my stuff online. A couple local liquor stores are expanding out into some homebrew supplies. I haven't seen any corn there though.

Ah I see. If I'm not mistaken some have used corn grits. But not 100% what the conversion is

Ok. I looked it up online. I'll have to tack some on my next order I guess.
